The following is a personality profile of Louise Penny based on her work.
Louise Penny is social, confident and informal.
She is confident, she is hard to embarrass and is self-confident most of the time. She is laid-back as well: she appreciates a relaxed pace in life. But, Louise Penny is also assertive: she tends to speak up and take charge of situations, and she is comfortable leading groups.
